NetApp SnapMirror Initial Setup

Solution Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The initial setup is a little difficult. The installation was straightforward using a system integrator. If a customer is not buying the installation on top of the services, it means that they already know what they're going to do, what needs to be done and have read the documentation. In this case, if the person installing it has read at least one document about configuring SnapMirror, it's just straightforward. The best preparation is to download the virtual NetApp, install it on Notebook or somewhere else and follow the steps. View full review »

Previous earlier versions of the solution had quite complex setups. Now, you can perform the cluster peer SQL replication or from the GUI so it's become quite easy and quite quick. Once you have stated the replication volume, etc., and the clusters are aligned, it takes a minute to implement. Of course, that's once your network requirements are specified. View full review »

The initial setup was quite straightforward. One has to implement one hardware system on two sites and then implement the functionality to mirror between the two sites. It doesn't take very long. So one has to implement and get the one site up and running first, and then implement the second site and get that up and running too. Then one can do the metering between them. View full review »

For me, the initial setup and configuration are easy because I am a NetApp specialist and engineer. I demonstrate the product to customers and show them how to use it. View full review »
